I think that as long as we're not planning on printing and publishing
everything that goes on in this group that we can use any modern grapheme
for outdated and cumbersome yogh, as long as we're clear about what we mean
by the grapheme in question. Be it through footnote, transcription or
common sense.

Kind regards,

Linus
